I'm back again...

....with some more stuff I've been making to sell. I've had these little paper mache boxes in my stash and thought they'd make cute little containers to hold treats or a small present like jewelery. I took a pencil and dipped the eraser end into white acrylic paint and stamped polka dots all over the box. The snowflake was a plain chipboard one, which I painted white and then coated with Ranger glossy accents and then sprinkled with some coarse glitter. After everything was dry, I added lace around the edge of the top, some ribbon, buttons and a tag. I really like how they turned out.

If you want to see the rest of them, you can check out my new Etsy shop (link is on the top right side of my blog page.
Thanks for visiting!

Yikes, it has been a LOOOO.....NG time....

...since I posted anything. Life has been keeping me busy. I have had a few orders for my altered wooden letters and I've been working on some other stuff to sell. More on that in the next couple of days. Today I'm showing you some of the letters. I've made these for baby gifts for family and friends and everyone always loves these.
I buy my letters at Walmart (I like the style they carry and they are easy to cover with paper).
I paint the letters with acrylic paint, then cover the front with patterned paper using Yes glue. After the glue has dried I sand all the edges and embellish the letters with ribbon, buttons, stamped images and anything else I can find. The girl letters get a nice dusting of fine glitter after I spray the letters with a sealer.
That's about it.
I'll be back with some goodies I posted at my new Etsy Shop either tonight or tomorrow.
Have a great day !
